Congratulatory Address by Rev. W. I. Murray, 
Pastor of Nativity Church. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, presented Rev. 
W. I. Murray, Pastor of Nativity Church, who ad- 
dressed the City Council, commending the people of 
Chicago for their election of the Honorable Richard 
J. Daley as Mayor, and stating that he looked for- 
ward to a greater Chicago under the new mayor's 
guidance. 



Inaugural Address of Honorable Richard J. Daley, 
Mayor. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, thereupon ad- 
dressed the City Council as follows : 

Tonight I find it difficult to express to the people 
of Chicago my mingled feelings of challenge and 
confidence, of pride and humility. 

I have lived all my life in a neighborhood of 
Chicago — all that I am I owe to the influence of 
my family, our neighborhood and our city. 

I have a deep pride in being part of the life of 
that neighborhood. I share in its problems and I 
know the needs of its people. Chicago is a city of 
neighborhoods and I resolve to be the mayor of all 
the neighborhoods — of all people of Chicago. 

The aldermen of the city council are men who 
have been chosen by their communities to repre- 
sent them. Their mission must be the same as 
mine. 

Tonight we start our job of carrying out the 
mandate given us by our fellow citizens. I know 
you are as eager as I am to accept the challenge 
of making our neighborhoods and our city a better 
place in which to live. 

The structure of our city government follows 
the general pattern of American government in 
that it has legislative, executive and judicial 
branches. 

The legislative branch is the city council, the 
executive — -the mayor. 

This is a council governed city. 

The aldermen were selected by the voters in 
their wards to represent their will. The needs of 
the wards are various. In some wards the pressing 
need may be better police protection — in others, 
adequate sewage disposal — in still others, housing 
or conservation or transportation. 

The aldermen know intimately the needs of the 
people in their area. These people are their neigh-

April 20, 1955 



bors. So we find it natural that aldermen — repre- 
senting their constituents — will be more concerned 
about some matters than others — that they will 
resist change in some endeavors and will welcome 
changes in others. 

This is also true of representative government 
in Congress and in the State legislature. 

A natural consequence of this process is a slow- 
ing down of some governmental activity. In some 
instances the interests of all the people may be 
endangered or overlooked. 

It has been charged that the city of Chicago has 
been slow in achieving some urgently needed im- 
provements. If at times the council has been slow, 
it is because aldermen and community leaders have 
been striving to protect their people and their 
neighborhoods. 

I believe in that principle. And in most cases 
what is good for the neighborhood is good for the 
city. 

The city council, however, is the legislative 
branch of government for the entire city, and each 
alderman is duty bound to pass laws for the inter- 
est of all the people. The city — not the ward — 
must command first allegiance. 

No individual or group — no political party or 
political faction — should have the right to block 
that which is good for all the city — or to attempt 
to pass ordinances contrary to the interest of all 
Chicago. 

I ran as a Democratic candidate for mayor of 
Chicago. I am proud to be a Democrat. 

Tonight, however, as Mayor of Chicago — I want 
to declare for all to hear — that my employer is all 
the people of Chicago — Democrats, Republicans, 
and Independents — of every economic group, of 
every neighborhood and every community. 

I have no intention of interfering in any way 
with the proper functions of the city council. But, 
as Mayor of Chicago, it is my duty to provide 
leadership for those measures which are essential 
to the interests of all the people — and, if neces- 
sary, to exercise the power of veto against any 
measures which would be harmful to the people. 

The City Council has under consideration meas- 
ures which will improve and modernize city gov- 
ernment. I refer to the proposals of the Home Rule 
Commission. 

The council has affirmed the transfer of budget 
making to the Mayor's office and the creation of 
the office of Deputy Mayor. 

I hope that the council will pass the recom- 
mendations of the commission which are now be- 
fore it. These are bills that would relieve the 
council of administrative and technical duties. 
They would permit the aldermen to devote most 
of their time to legislation. 

I urge the council to consider quickly other com- 
mission recommendations that will do much to 
modernize and make more efficient and represen- 
tative our city government. 

Many of the Home Rule recommendations would 
give added duties and responsibilities to the Mayor 
and his department heads. It must never be for- 
gotten, however, that the city council as the legis- 
lative body has the ultimate authority over the 
city government. Just as I fully accept the duties 
and responsibilities of the executive office, so do I 
recognize the duties and responsibilities of the 
City Council. 

In the recent intense and bitter campaign many 
of the issues raised were designed to confuse and 



mislead. Tonight, as I begin my four years as 
mayor, I ask nothing more of the people of Chi- 
cago and the City Council than to judge me by 
actions and accomplishments in the next four 
years as the Chief Executive of this great city. 

I want to express the appreciation and admira- 
tion which I know all the people of Chicago have 
for the administration of Martin Kennelly. He will 
always be remembered as a Mayor who made im- 
portant contributions to his city. 

Chicago can be thankful that under his admin- 
istration and through the cooperation of the City 
Council much was accomplished. There are great 
projects under way — slum clearance — new housing 
— school building — superhighways — street-lighting 
projects — neighborhood redevelopment — off-street 
parking in neighborhood communities — and many 
other improvements. I shall not only support these 
projects, I shall speed them vigorously and with 
energy. I will permit nothing to stand in the way 
of Chicago's growing civic consciousness and civic 
integrity. 

In the period before us, there are a great many 
things to do — great problems to overcome. 

During the war, and the difficult period of re- 
adjustment which followed it, the people of Chi- 
cago, and the nation, accepted the inevitable limi- 
tations and shortages. These conditions affected 
essential services, prevented much needed improve- 
ments and curtailed even normal maintenance. 

We are all aware of the problems which have 
arisen — problems that all cities have in common — 
housing, police protection, human relations, juve- 
nile delinquency, transportation and schools. Some 
of these problems have their roots in the years of 
war-time stress and post-war adjustment. Others 
are natural consequences of urban growth and 
population pressures. 

We not only have to cope with our present needs, 
but to answer the growing demand by our citizens 
for new services. I do not believe that the purpose 
of govermnent is to provide the vital services at 
their minimum. It isn't enough to dispose of gar- 
bage in such a way as to meet minimum health 
standards. It isn't enough to have a transportation 
system which barely meets minimum needs and 
operates at a loss. 

We can't be satisfied with a school system in 
which 14 thousand students must attend double 
shift schools, and where classes are overcrowded 
and where school buildings are old and dilapidated. 

We want the finest police and fire departments 
in the nation. 

We must provide the opportunity for every 
citizen to have decent housing. We must have 
slum clearance. While we are clearing the slums, 
we must prevent the spread of blight into other 
neighborhoods. 

These are immediate problems. These are the 
things that the people of Chicago want now. 

There are long-range problems to consider also 
— and we will initiate and encourage the develop- 
ment of programs and projects to meet them. 

But we must not scatter our man power, our 
resources, or dissipate our time on what the city 
should have — when there is so much that the city 
must have. 

We must take first things first. We must con- 
centrate our efforts on city services which are 
essential to keep the people of Chicago the health- 
iest, best protected and most prosperous in the 
nation.

These are the things that our people want now. 
These are the services which make a city strong 
and vigorous. They make our city a better place 
in which to live. 

It would be difficult, and perhaps unwise, to say 
which of the programs of the city should be given 
priority. 

But, underlying all our problems, and basic to 
all our programs, is the city's desperate need for 
additional revenue. 

No one knows this better than the members of 
the city council. 

We will strive to eliminate waste. We will econ- 
omize and increase our efficiency. But no matter 
how successful we are in achieving these goals, we 
still will not be able to give minimum essential 
services unless the State legislature unlocks the 
handcuffs on our revenue power. 

The members of the State legislature know full 
well what it takes to operate a city and that taxes 
on property cannot meet the costs of essential 
services of the second largest city in the nation. 

In the past years, the city administration and 
city council have unceasingly sought additional 
revenue from the state, as well as new sources of 
non-property revenue to meet the continual rising 
cost of government. 

Many proposals have been made to the state by 
the cities for additional revenue from the state as 
well as powers to raise non-property revenue. Thus 
far the state has given the cities very little relief. 

In 1952, the Mayor's commission on revenue, 
which was not a political commission in any way, 
analyzed the needs of Chicago. This non-partisan 
commission estimated that for corporate purposes, 
the city needed immediately 23 million dollars in 
additional revenue. 

The commission's recommendations for addi- 
tional tax powers were presented to the legislature. 
The result was to make available not more than 
five and a half million of the 23 million dollars 
needed. The city was left helpless in the face of 
rising costs. 

The legislature is now in session. We will pre- 
sent Chicago's needs for additional revenue from 
the state — and for authority to obtain more non- 
property revenue to maintain and improve the 
city's services. 

We will go to the legislature as often as neces- 
sary. 

We are not asking for special privileges. We are 
asking for what we think we are justly and right- 
fully entitled to. 

In this task — as well as in meeting other basic 
problems of the city — I shall urge the active co- 
operation and support from individuals, business, 
civic, and labor organizations and community 
groups. 

This task can only be accomplished by team- 
work, cooperation and unity. It is not a political 
problem but a civic problem. In the very near 
future, I shall call a meeting of representatives of 
all interests in Chicago to join with me and the 
city council in preparing an integrated legislative 
program to bring Chicago the things it vitally 
needs. 

The program presented to the legislature will 
represent a program for Chicago. And the state 
must answer to the people of Chicago. 

There are many problems before us that de- 
mand immediate attention and action. 



There is no dispute among us that we need more 
police and a better police department — that we 
need more schools and more teachers — that gov- 
ernment should be continuously streamlined and 
modernized — that there must be something done to 
improve our transportation system — and to get 
mass transportation off the streets. 

We must eliminate the blight in middle-aged 
neighborhoods and utilize vacant and under-used 
areas of the city for the building of new homes 
and apartments. 

A community betterment program will also in- 
clude cleaner and safer streets, extension of sew- 
ers, the expansion of street lighting and a bigger 
street-cleaning department, and a realistic human 
relations program. More recreational facilities, too, 
are needed in the neighborhoods, more playgrounds 
and parks to keep children and teenagers off the 
streets and out of the juvenile home. 

I am fully aware of the vital importance of the 
Mayor's appointing power. The status of thousands 
of civil service workers will be unaffected. We must 
have a program of continual improvement in civil 
service. We must have a program that will attract 
the best young men and women from our univer- 
sities and communities into the service of the city. 

There will be changes in the administrative 
policy-making positions. And I will appoint the 
best men and women available, regardless of polit- 
ical affiliations. 

It has been my philosophy all my life that good 
government is good politics. It is this philosophy 
I will follow as Mayor of Chicago. Whatever polit- 
ical aspect there is in the mayor's office will be 
deferred while we concentrate on the immediate 
and urgent problems that face the city. 

These are just some of the problems that must 
be met quickly — these problems are the first order 
of business. 

In meeting them we can draw a lesson from 
Chicago's inspiring history. 

When Cook County was organized in 1831, Chi- 
cago — then a tiny village in the great Prairie State 
— became a seat of Justice. It became a town in 
1833 and a city in 1837. 

By that time Chicago was confident of its future. 
Its people saw tremendous possibilities in its loca- 
tion and in its natural facilities. 

They had visions of Chicago as a great center 
of lake transportation. The State of Illinois began 
developing the Illinois and Michigan Canal, and the 
Federal Government helped in the development of 
the harbor. 

Then came the growth of the railroads. The 
vision of Chicago as the hub of the transportation 
network of the nation came along. 

These pioneers knew they were on the verge of 
a great expansion, and they drew strength and 
inspiration from their dream of a mighty Chicago. 

We today are in a similar position. With the 
development of the St. Lawrence Seaway we can 
become the greatest inland port of the world. 

We are the aviation crossroad of the continent, 
and we can be the world's aviation center. 

We, too, can be pioneers, pioneers of a greater 
city of the future — just as our forefathers were. 

I have met too many people with a defeatist 
attitude toward our great city. They spoke gloom- 
ily of the great problems that would face the chief 
executive of the second largest city of the nation. 

When I listened to these people, I felt that in 
many ways they were strangers to the real Chicago. 



JOUKNAL^CITY COUNCIL^CHICAGO 



April 20, 1955 



I mean the Chicago that is the great economic 
and financial giant of the midwest. 

I mean the Chicago made up of contributions 
from people of every race, religion and nationality. 

I mean the Chicago made up of fine neighbor- 
hoods. 

I mean the Chicago made up of splendid churches 
and temples of every faith. 

I mean Chicago — the medical center of the world 
— with the finest hospitals in the nation. 

I mean Chicago with its great universities. 

I mean the Chicago that has maintained the Art 
Institute — the Museum of Natural History — Li- 
braries — and other cultural institutions which are 
among the foremost in our land. 

I mean the Chicago that is a city of parks and 
beaches. 

I mean the railroad center of the nation and the 
air center and truck center of the continent. 

I mean Chicago — the hog butcher of the world 
— the city of broad shoulders. 

I mean Chicago that is destined to have the 
largest inland port in the world. 

I mean Chicago, with an unlimited potential, to 
be the magnificent city of the future. 

I mean the Chicago of "I WILL." 

This is the real Chicago. 

This is the reputation by which Chicago should 
be known to the people of the Nation and the 
World. 

As Mayor I feel that one of my greatest respon- 
sibilities is to present a true picture of our great 
city — and to erase the unreal notion that many 
people have of Chicago and its people. 

The Mayor's office is no ivory tower. Its prob- 
lems cannot be solved with a slide rule. There are 



no miracles — there are no bargains in government 
as in anything else. 

But if work, and sincerity, and the highest dedi- 
cation to the city and its people can bring pro- 
grams into reality — 

If effort, intelligent approach and courage can 
solve problems — 

If humility, patience, and vision can surmount 
obstacles — then Chicago will go forward. 

To this end I will dedicate myself — to a sincere,, 
honest and vigorous administration, to maintain 
the fabric of civil life in Chicago and lay a con- 
crete foundation for a renewal of faith in our City's 
dignity and future. 

With your cooperation and with cooperation of 
the people of Chicago, and with God's help, we 
shall not fail. 



Benediction Pronounced by Rabbi Herman L. Davis. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, thereupon pre- 
sented Rabbi Herman L. Davis of Lakeview Anshe 
Sholom Center, who pronounced a benediction upon 
the new Mayor and the members of the City Council, 
and assembled guests.

1955, at 2:00 P.M. 

The motion prevailed, and the City Council stood

motion; and

majority of all the aldermen authorized by law to 
be elected. 

Previous Question.

on the main question, and seconded, it shall be put 
in this form: "Shall the main question now be 
put?" If such motion be carried, all further amend- 
ment and all further motions and debate shall be 
excluded, and the question put without delay, upon 
the pending amendments in proper order, and then 
upon the main question. 

Motions to Lay on the Table and to 
Take from the Table. 

Rule 27. A motion simply to lay a question on 
the table shall not be debatable; but a motion to 
lay on the table and publish, or with any other 
condition, shall be subject to amendment and 
debate. 

A motion to take any motion or other proposi- 
tion from the table may be proposed at the same 
meeting at which such motion or proposition was 
laid upon the table, provided two-thirds of the 
aldermen vote therefor. 

Rule 28. A motion to lay any particular mo- 
tion or proposition on the table shall apply to that

thereby. 



Postponement; Motion to Defer or Postpone 
Without Any Reference to Time.

consideration of a motion or other proposition may 
not be postponed indefinitely. Unless a definite 
time is set for its subsequent consideration and

any reference to time, shall be construed as a mo- 
tion to postpone to the next succeeding regular 
meeting. 

Motion to Refer.

mittee shall take precedence over a similar motion

ment relating to a different subject shall not be 
in order. 

On an amendment to "Strike out and insert", 
the paragraph to be amended shall first be read 
as it stands, then the words proposed to be stricken 
out, then those to be inserted, and finally the par- 
agraph as it will stand if so amended shall be read. 

Rule 33. An amendment to the main question 
or other pending question may be referred to a 
committee and neither the main question nor such 
other pending question shall be affected thereby.

ferent sums or times proposed, the question shall 
be taken first on the least sum or the longest time. 

Motion to Substitute. 

Rule 35. A substitute for any original proposi- 
tion under debate or for any pending amendment 
to such proposition may be entertained notwith-

or amendment, as the case may be, and cut off all 
amendments appertaining thereto. 

Reconsideration. 

Rule 36. A vote or question may be recon- 
sidered at any time during the same meeting, or 
at the first regular meeting held thereafter. A 
motion for reconsideration, having been once made 
and decided in the negative, shall not be renewed, 
nor shall a motion to reconsider be reconsidered. 

Rule 37. A motion to reconsider must be made 
and seconded by members who voted on the pre- 
vailing side of the question to be reconsidered, un- 
less otherwise provided by law; provided, however, 
that where a motion has received a majority vote 
in the affirmative, but is declared lost solely on the 
ground that a greater number of affirmative votes 
is required by statute for the passage or adoption 
of such motion, then in such case a motion to re- 
consider may be made and seconded only by those 
who voted in the affirmative on such question to 
be reconsidered.

feel particularly happy, because, after his fifty-five 
years of continuous service with the City Council in 
various capacities, the aldermen gave evidence, by 
choosing him to continue to serve them in an official 
capacity, that he still retained their confidence and 
good-will. In reminiscing briefly, he stated that he 
had enjoyed his association with the aldermen and 
his fellow workers through the years, and that he 
was especially pleased to recall that one of his young 
assistants in particular had gone forward with rapid 
strides to become the first citizen of his city, and was 
at that moment presiding over the City Council, which 
he had at one time served as a clerk. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, thereupon 
took occasion to express his gratitude for Mr. Har- 
rah's good counsel and advice given him during the 
period when he was under Mr. Harrah's supervision.

Whereas, Announcement on April 8, 1955 of the 
successful culmination of the long search for an 
effective weapon against poliomyelitis, one of the 
most deadly and fatal diseases known to mankind, 
shines as a clear beacon in an age in which the at- 
tention of scientists the world over seems concen- 
trated on the discovery and perfection of destruc- 
tive forces greater and more far-reaching than the 
imagination of mankind can conceive; and 

Whereas, Dr. Jonas E. Salk, research scien- 
tist, whose faith, ingeniousness and perseverance 
through long years of study and experiment has 
triumphed in producing a vaccine which will im- 
munize mankind against the hitherto unhaltable

Resolution Adopted on Death of Capt. 
Edward A. Hayes. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, More than eighteen million veterans of 
the Armed Forces of the United States mourned the 
passing of Edward A. Hayes on April 2, 1955; and 

Whereas, Chicagoans and citizens from through- 
out the nation had grown to love and respect this 
Illinois leader who was born in Morrisonville and 
who had, after completing his legal education, 
enlisted in the United States Navy as an Apprentice 
Seaman and had risen to the rank of Ensign to 
serve as Aide to Admiral Moffett ; and 

Whereas, After serving his country with honor 
and distinction in World War I, Edward A. Hayes 
devoted himself to the ideals of his country and 
the philosophies of free men by working untiring in 
the American Legion; and 

Whereas, Edward A. Hayes reached the pinnacle 
of veteran leadership in 1933 by being selected 
National Commander of the American Legion so 
that he could more widely crusade for tolerance, 
justice and fair play; and 

Whereas, He answered the call to the colors 
again in July, 1941, and went on active duty with 
the United States Navy — this time as a Commander 
and rising to the rank of Captain — because he so 
strongly felt the dangers which periled America's 
shores; and 

Whereas, Captain Edward A. Hayes spoke for 
men of all faiths, all races and all creeds to warn 
freedom-loving people of the Soviet "Red" menace, 
thus kindling an ever-burning flame of devotion 
and duty to his flag and his country; and 

Whereas, The life-long efforts of Captain Edward 
A. Hayes toward building a monument of respect 
and admiration for himself and his beloved nation 
should serve as a cornerstone of ever-lasting liber- 
ty; now, therefore 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council of the 
City of Chicago and the Mayor of the City of Chi- 
cago offer to the family of Captain Edward A. 
Hayes and to the American Legion and to freedom- 
loving people everywhere their heartfelt condolences 
on the passing of Captain Edward A. Hayes ; and

Presented by 
ALDERMAN RON AN (30th Ward) : 

Federal Communications Commission Petitioned to 
Grant Licenses, Etc. for Subscription TV. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, Television has become an important 
factor in our daily lives, for the dissemination of 
current and historical information, entertainment 
and cultural features; and. 

Whereas, Television has not been able to achieve 
the fullest extent of its capability in these fields 
because of the limited types of programs that com- 
mercial sponsors are able to afford; and 

Whereas, One of Chicago's leading industries, 
the Zenith Radio Corporation, has pioneered in the 
development of a Subscription TV system since 
1931, whereby the program viewer can make direct 
payment for a desired special program at moderate 
rates, through the Phonevision Plan; and 

Whereas, The purpose of the Subscription TV 
plan is not to supplant or interfere with commercial 
TV, in any instance, but rather to augment the 
income which stations receive from commercial TV, 
and the implementing of such a program would 
provide additional employment in various fields of 
the industry in the Chicago area; therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council of Chicago 
does hereby respectfully petition the Federal Com- 
munications Commission to grant the necessary 
licenses, permits, and permission to assign the re- 
quired channels to permit the public to enjoy, if 
they so desire, all the advantages of Subscrip- 
tion TV.

lution was adopted.

ceive, and receipt for Federal monies, and 
other monies, either public or private, for and 
in behalf of this State, or any municipality or 
other political subdivision thereof, at the 
request of such municipality or political sub- 
division for the acquisition, construction, de- 
velopment, improvement, operation and main- 
tenance of air navigation facilities in this 
State, whether such work is to be done by the 
State or by such municipalities or other poli- 
tical subdivisions, or jointly, aided by grants 
of aid from the United States upon such terms 
and conditions as are or may be prescribed 
by the laws of the United States and any rules 
or regulations made thereunder, and it is au- 
thorized to act as agent of any municipality 
or other political subdivision of this State

tracting for the acquisition, construction, de- 
velopment, improvement, operation and main- 
tenance of air navigation facilities in this 



State, financed either in whole or in part by 
Federal monies, and the governing body of 
any such municipality or other political sub- 
division is authorized to designate the Depart- 
ment as its agent for such purposes and to 
enter into an agreement with it prescribing 
the terms and conditions of such agency in 
accordance with Federal laws, rules, and regu- 
lations and with this Act. Such monies as are 
paid over by the United States Government 
shall be retained by the State or paid over to 
said municipalities or other political subdivi- 
sions under such terms and conditions as may 
be imposed by the United States Government 
in making such grants.

sion in this state, whether acting alone or 
jointly with another municipality or political

Congress approved May 13, 1946, being a Pub- 
lic Law 377, 79th Congress, known and here-

No such municipality or political subdivision 
shall directly accept, receive, receipt for, or 
disburse any funds granted by the United 
States under the Federal Airport Act, but it 
shall designate the Department of Aeronautics 
as its agent to accept, receive, receipt for and 
disburse such funds, provided, however, noth- 
ing in this section shall be construed to pro- 
hibit any municipality or any political sub- 
division of more than 500,000 inhabitants 
from disbursing such funds through its cor- 
porate authorities. It shall enter into an agree- 
ment with the Department prescribing the 
terms and conditions of such agency in ac- 
cordance with Federal laws, rules and regula- 
tions and applicable laws of this state. 

"40. All monies accepted for disbursement 
by the Department pursuant to Section 38 
shall be deposited in the State Treasury, and, 
unless otherwise prescribed by the authority 
from which the money is received, kept in 
separate funds, designated according to the 
purposes for which the monies were made 
available, and held by the State in trust for 
such purposes. All such monies are hereby 
appropriated for the purposes for which the 
same were made available, to be expended in 
accordance with Federal laws and rules and 
regulations thereunder and with this Act. 
The Department is authorized, whether acting 
for this State ot as the agent of any of its 
municipalities or other political subdivisions, 
or when requested by the United States Gov- 
ernment or any agency or department thereof, 
subject to Section 41, to disburse such monies 
for the designated purposes, but this shall not 
preclude any other authorized method of dis- 
bursement." 

Now, Therefore, in order to insure the lawful, 
orderly and expeditious development of said 
project and the lawful channeling, custody, dis- 
bursement, and accounting of and for such funds 
as are made available for the purposes of said 
project by way of such Federal grant-in-aid. It

Exhibit A. 

Department of Public Works 

Bureau of Engineering 

March 1, 1955. 
Mr. Virgil E . Gunlock, 
Chairman, Chicago Transit Board, 
Merchandise Mart Plaza, 
Chicago, Illinois. 

Re: Installation of Track and Special Work in 
the West Side Subway Extension, from S. 
Laramie Avenue to a Connection with the 
Existing Tracks in the Milwaukee-Dearborn- 
Congress Subway. 
Dear Sir — As a result of recent conferences with 
representatives of this Department and representa- 
tives of Chicago Transit Authority, it was tenta- 
tively agreed that C. T. A. would (subject to the 
approval of Chicago Transit Board) furnish all 
material and labor for the following items: 

1. The tracks in the West Side Subway Exten- 
sion from S. Laramie Avenue to a connection 
with the existing tracks in the Milwaukee- 
Dearborn-Congress Subway at approximately 
the east bank of the South Branch of the Chi- 
cago River; 

2. The crossovers necessary to maintain opera- 
tion in the event of disabled equipment, de- 
railment, wreck, etc. 

3. The Laramie Yard leads, crossovers, turn- 
outs, curves and platforms between the main 
traclcs and the necessary rearrangement to 
the east end of the Laramie Yard. 

4. The tracks connecting the Douglas Park 
Branch into the Garfield Park tracks in the 
median at S. Loomis Street. 

5. Ballast. 

It was further agreed that all of the work here- 
inabove described and covered by Chicago Transit 
Authority estimate contained herein shall be done 
by Chicago Transit Authority with its own forces 
and Chicago Transit Authority shall be paid in 
monthly installments by the City of Chicago for 
its costs of all labor and material expenditures in 
connection with the work including the furnishing 
and installing of the ballast which will also be paid 
to Chicago Transit Authority by the City, the cost 
of which will be participated in by the highway 
agencies in accordance with existing four-party 
agreements pertaining to the construction of the 
West Route Superhighway. 

According to estimates of cost submitted by Chi- 
cago Transit Authority in letter of Mr. Forsythe, 
dated February 25, 1955, the work described under 
Items 1 to 5 of the foregoing list will cost approxi- 
mately, as follows: 

Item 1 $1,399,800 

Item 2 292,200 

Item 3 360,000 

Item 4 211,000 

Item 5 200,000 



Total $2,463,000 
This total cost includes ballast, ties, rails and 
rail fittings, but does not include any cost in con- 
nection with the installation of the third rail, other 
than the long ties necessary to support the third 
rail insulators. 

All of this work to be done by C. T. A., except 
for Item 5, will be paid to C. T. A. by the City 
from Subway Bonds — 1952 and will be charged in 
your billing to us to Section WS-7 of the West 
Side Subway Extension. 



The cost of ballast under Item 5 will be paid to 
C. T. A. by the City from Motor Fuel Tax Funds 
or Superhighway Bond funds. 

It is also agreed that Chicago Transit Authority 
will furnish all engineering services for the prepa- 
ration of plans and the supervision of construction 
and field work for the trackwork as enumerated 
under Items 1 to 5, inclusive hereof. Chicago Tran- 
sit Authority will also prepare and furnish to the 
City complete plans and specifications in suitable 
form ready for the receipt of proposals for the 
work of furnishing and installing under public bid- 
ding the power distribution system for the West 
Side Subway from the S. Laramie Avenue to the 
existing tracks in the Milwaukee-Dearborn-Con- 
gress Subway at the Chicago River including the 
Douglas connection, connection to the Laramie 
yard and communication system and power super- 
visory control system. The cost of engineering for 
the trackwork and for the power distribution sys- 
tem, communication system and supervisory con- 
trol system is estimated to be $150,000.00. The City 
will pay Chicago Transit Authority for the engin- 
eering services enumerated in this paragraph at its 
actual cost. Engineering for track shall be charged 
to Section WS-7 and for the power distribution, 
communication and supervisory control systems to 
Section WS-8. 

I propose, therefore, subject to the approval of 
the City Council, that Chicago Transit Authority 
furnish materials and labor for and carry out the 
work described in Items 1 to 5 inclusive hereof; for 
all of which it will be repaid by the City in an 
amount equal to the actual cost of the labor and 
material required for such work with the except- 
tion of Item 5 which will be paid for jointly by the 
City, the County of Cook, and the State of Illinois, 
in accordance with existing agreements. 

It is understood that in accordance with the 
terms of an ordinance authorizing and granting to 
Chicago Transit Authority the exclusive right to 
acquire, construct, reconstruct, maintain and oper- 
ate facilities for local transportation within the 
City of Chicago passed April 23, 1945 Chicago 
Transit Authority will reimburse the City for the 
cost of fixed transportation equipment to be in- 
stalled in the West Side Subway as stated in this 
letter including engineering costs but excluding the 
cost of ballast. 

You are requested to sign and return to this 
office one copy of this letter, signifying your agree- 
ment to perform the work described in this para- 
graph under the terms set forth herein. 

In order to assist in the successful completion of 
this project at the earliest possible time, we urge 
that the Chicago Transit Authority immediately 
proceed with its phase of the work. 
Yours very truly,

Chicago but by thousands upon thousands of men 
and women throughout the nation to whom the 
name "Chicago" will ever evoke memories of hospi- 
tality and friendliness extended to them without 
measure at the Chicago Service Men's Centers dur- 
ing the War years; and 

Whereas, It was largely through the inspiration 
and devotion and interest of Mrs. Kelly, then First 
Lady of Chicago, that the Chicago Service Men's

ices of the United States during their stay in this 
city; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the people of Chicago and

life, and its sorrow at her passing; and be it 

Further Resolved, That this Resolution be spread 
upon the record of the proceedings of the City 
Council and an engrossed copy thereof be presented

fledgling town of less than a half a square mile in

and 

Whereas, With indomitable spirit, Chicago rose 
out of the ashes of a devastating fire to become the 
nation's second largest and the world's fourth larg- 
est city; and 

Whereas, Chicago is the crossroads of the na- 
tion, the market place of the midwest, and the heart 
of the greatest agricultural region on the face of 
the earth; and 

Whereas, Chicago's vast and diversified indus- 
tries have become the workshop of the nation ; and 

Whereas, Chicago is the hub of the railroad 
network of the nation; the air center and trucking 
center of the nation; and will be one of the world's 
great inland ports; and 

Whereas, Chicago has matched its industrial and 
commercial progress with the growth of great cul- 
tural, scientific, and educational institutions, be- 
coming the medical mecca of the world; its univer- 
sities standing among the foremost in the country; 
its museums and cultural institutions ranking 
among the finest in the nation ; and

faith; and 

Whereas, Chicago is a city of beauty, of parks, 
beaches and playgrounds; and 

Whereas, The greatness, spirit and character of 
Chicago and its people have never been truly and

outside world of Chicago's true character, and its 
outstanding people. 

Committee consideration was dispensed with by 
unanimous consent, and on motion of Alderman Cul- 
lerton (seconded by Alderman Janousek and Alderman

Melaniphy, Acting Corporation Counsel, addressed to 
the City Council under date of May 6, 1955, which was 
Placed on File and ordered published: 

"Gentlemen — At the meeting of the City Council 
held on April 21, 1955, a request was made for a 
written opinion as to the status of the Emergency 
Committee on Crime which committee was created 
by ordinance of the City Council passed on Febru- 
ary 14, 1952 (C. J. p. 1932). An appropriation for 
this committee was made by the City Council in 
the Annual Appropriation Ordinance of the City 
of Chicago for the Year 1955, passed December 10, 
1954 (C. J. pp. 8815-9019). 

"The ordinance creating the committee was held 
to be valid by the Supreme Court of Illinois in the 
case entitled Du Bois et al. v. Gibbons, et al., in an 
opinion appearing in Volume 2 111. (2) 392 of the 
Supreme Court Reports. 

"On April 21, 1955, the Committee on Commit- 
tees and Rules submitted to the City Council reso- 
lutions for the adoption of Rules of Orders and for 
the appointment of membership of the standing 
committees of the City Council. No mention is 
made therein to the Emergency Committee on 
Crime. 

"It is our opinion that the Emergency Commit- 
tee on Crime has the authority to continue to func- 
tion until such time as the ordinance creating it is 
repealed by ordinance (Hibbard & Co. v. City of 
Chicago, 173 111. 91, 97), or until it presents to the 
City Council its final report (Section 32, Robert's 
Rules of Order Revised). 

"In the Hibbard & Co. case the Supreme Court 
said: 

'A mere resolution or order by the City Coun- 
cil, not passed and published as an ordinance of 
the City, would not constitute a repeal of an 
ordinance duly passed.' 

"The fact that there are vacancies in the mem- 
bership of the committee due to recent elections in 
no manner affects the legal status of the commit- 
tee any more than it would be affected if such 
vacancies occurred by reason of other factors, such 
as a resignation or a death of a member. There 
are enough members remaining on the committee 
to constitute a quorum (City Council Rule 43)."
